Slim: I catch your drift. Running counter to your valid points, people may well “reap the whirlwind” of fate and stare blindly into the endless oblivion of Eternity, as it were. I’ll send flowers.

G-WHIZ: Yes, and I would add emphasis to the fact that they need to change their underwear at least once a week!

AllPeople: I wasn’t there. So I don’t know what they heard or didn’t hear. Hearsay to the contrary is just that, “hearsay.” However, your points are worthy of debate. Good post!

ibb: The situation in Cleveland is looking up but I would further expand the matrix. This incident didn’t rise to a high level of perceived outrage and several month’s of a long cooling off period before the trial, took the steam out of a Ferguson or Baltimore debacle.
It’s okay with me if people in charge want to pat themselves on the back but it’s like people talk about having a good marriage. They believe it’s because they’re so much better equipped to deal with the challenges, never knowing that a good marriage is like a good bet, if you win. If not, you join the other 50% in the divorce rate.

Wing: I’m not sure where all this “let me get this straight” line comes from but I’ll add to the fray, as it were. This time the judge didn’t cater to Mobocracy (Mahb-och-crah-see). The new American lexicon notwithstanding, once in awhile the court gets it right. However, I wholly agree on how one should deal with the police. I’ve never come close to being arrested. In effect, if you confront authority (asking for it), you’ll “get it!”

Fly: Standing on the hood of the car provided a better line of sight on the targets. Apparently, target acquisition isn’t one of your strong suits?

Officer Brelo if anything should receive some more range time because 49 shots in this one incident is a little over the top. Of course, he should be retained on the police force. If not a justified spot in Cleveland, his certification should hold firm and relevant to experience for another city. We know that this guy in combat can certainly respond with “affirmative action”, (no pun intended).
As for the semi-professional OWS protester types roaming the inner city streets, they need to change their underwear more than once a week and find an alleyway water faucet for a French bath. They have nothing to say of import and their writing skills on posters is wanting, to say the least. Acting like an alcoholic swinging madly at ghosts from a bad childhood, is no substitute for true “civil disobedience”, as the MSM likes to call it.
Oooh…Y’a mean “those”: BUSSED-IN FROM OUT-O-STATE-[D]PROG-ANARCHIST-FORCE-PAID-BY-YOUR-LEGAL-TAXDEBT-NOTES PROTESTERS?!
So Sarge.. They "thought" a backfire was a gunshot.... Then they thought their own gunfire was from the "suspect"... And you think Brelo needs range time?
I would assert that they ALL need a hearing test...
There are no "good guys" in this entire scenario....

Does this mean that a Gay marriage in Ireland must be recognized in Iran? Also, all the other Muslim countries? Or it that where Ireland can’t go?
bjorn: I noticed that as well. Pilsner Urquel is very good and very, very old.

The-Monk: I caught his press conference. At first I though the Mayor was mentally challenged and then the Democrat appointed police chief confirmed my core suspicion. They are far more concerned with keeping the protestors happy than supporting the contributing citizens that are just trying to continue a normal life. You know, like going to work and what not? Blue city. Blue rule. “Blue” results.

need: Same way the Democrats view elections and the Constitution. If it goes their way, okay. If not, the elections were bought by the Republicans and the Constitution is an old rag that needs to be ignored.

DMX: Take a closer look at the “protestors.” Many are paid OWS types. All White and pure waste!
If that is true, they are worse than the black trash that just wants an excuse to steal and trash

Ghost: Good spot. For sure they have been planning this for a long time coming. Tonight should be very interesting in Cleveland. And here I thought it was a slow news day.

Gonzo: Well, it is Saturday so the timing is right. Blue city. “Blue” just desserts! Today in totally beautiful weather I got a lot of outdoor work done on my estate. I sure am happy, on two fronts.
1) I’m here. 2) They are in Cleveland.

The trouble makers in Cleveland are not “protestors”, they are anarchists. Isis killers are not just some folks out on an evening walk in Benghazi or Syria, they are terrorists. Names are important. Identity is at the core of understanding these incidents. Furthermore, these constant battles with justice and the true American Way are taking place inside Blue cities. Environment is the other key to the matrix. Blue states are big trouble and the “core” of their own “trouble.”

“Megastar?” What kind of over the top crap hook is that to get the reader to open up the article? My first thought was something from Clint Eastwood. If he’s not a true “Megastar” then I don’t know of whomsoever in the entire universe that is? Not to mention the fact, I never even heard of the guy and I’ve forgotten more movie trivia than all the Libs combined can ever recall. What has happened to Zach Noble? Is he trying to mimic Oliver Darcy, or what?
Yeah sure, and Tom Cruise is going to reject his next movie because he can’t compete with my looks and talent!
He's one of the biggest names in Hollywood and that's just a fact. Just because he's not a fossil like Eastwood doesn't mean that he's not a big time actor. You're the trivia master? Sorry, but anyone who has been to the movies in the last couple of years knows who he is - if not by name then at least by face.

Proud: & Chromo: Good points. Ireland has fallen into the dark abyss via a strong socialist dominion that has eroded the influence of traditional church edicts. If Gay Marriage prevails in this vote that’s an affirmation of just how far down the toilet Ireland has flushed. I have to wonder why the votes weren’t counted first before the media trumpets a Gay victory? Is the MSM that desperate for approval?

Lloyd: You have a good grasp on history. Obviously better than the writers of this thumbnail tripe. I know the feeling.

Here’s the actual history that was totally overlooked in the article (as usual). In the B.C. (Before Communism) days of China the European powers (and even the U.S.) had been carving up spheres of influence and commerce. The British founded the Opium Trade (resulting in the Opium Wars). Anyway, the Germans also had their input.
They built German style breweries with German Master Brewers, governing the recipe and process. In effect, the beer in China today was originally German. Most people recognize that Germany produced many of the great world beers. Even the communists liked beer, so they retained that industry. In retrospect considering all of my expert input, the BLAZE really should run most articles by me, for both clarity and the editing of facts, especially when they submit the first word on firearms.
As they say in the inner circles of universal knowledge. “Ain’t that the truth!”
